Duracell have been manufacturing high quality batteries since the 1920’s and have developed a reputation as the world’s leading battery manufacturer.
The Duracell Pre Charged Rechargeable Nimh Batteries Combo is a compact battery charger, which is ideal for high drain appliances. The specific model of this charger is the Duracell CEF14NC. Duracell have made a couple of enhancements over their previous value charger; these include a universal voltage input and the ability to charge up to 4 triple A cells.
Features of the Duracell Pre Charged Rechargeable Nimh Batteries Combo
- Charges up to 4 triple A cells
- Accepts a universal AC input of 100-240v
- Duracell Pre-Charged batteries can retain power for up to 1 year when not in use
- Supplied with 8 Pre-Charged batteries (4 AA and 4 triple A batteries)
- Ideal for use with high drain appliances
A plus point is that you can charge up to 4 triple A cells at once, unlike with many other chargers which can only charge 2 triple A cells at a time.
Batteries can only be charged in pairs or sets of fours, which is rather disappointing because you can’t charge only 1 or 3 batteries if you have an appliance which requires batteries in odd numbers.
Another disadvantage is that the charger only stops charging when the combined voltage of the 2 batteries is sufficient enough. This means that if you are charging 1 empty battery with one which is either full or almost full then one of the cells will be overcharged which is detriment to the length of the batteries life.
